Different Types of Moulding

Different types of moulding molding architectural details

The world of moulding trims, or molding as we Yankees spell it, is a vast one, but I thought we could cover the basics. And just so you know, I will be spelling moulding with a ‘u’ because it makes me feel fancy. Speaking of feeling fancy, I feel like a lot people associate moulding with a more traditional look, which is partly true, but mixing a traditional moulding backdrop with contemporary, and colorful, pieces of furniture is just about my favorite look ever.

Some of my most challenging projects have been the ones that required a lot of architectural detail specifications (i.e. a ton of moulding call outs). These projects really made me push my design boundaries because I usually have a ‘cleaner’ style of design, but having to work on such projects really broadened the types of design I’m capable of. Above is a rendering of such a project. This was a crazy estate that was being built in China, massive, four levels complete with an indoor pool and home theatre. So yes, a lotta lotta moulding.

Let’s go through the basics…

Crown molding disguises the seam between the walls and the ceiling. It can have a simple profile or a very elaborate one.

Chair rails are moulding installed about 1/3 way up the wall from the floor (although I’ve installed chair rails at different heights, from 36″h to 60″h). Depends on the look you want to achieve. This look is a great way to add architectural detail to a room, or to accentuate multiple paint tones.

Baseboard mouldings are installed where the wall and flooring meet. A tall moulding around the edge a room can make the space appear a bit taller and more elegant.

Window mouldings are…guess? Yes, trim around windows. Surrounding a window with molding can enhance and frame the view.

Panel molding is typically applied on walls, doors, ceilings and other surfaces throughout the home. You can create panels that add depth and a feeling of elegance or enhanced style.
